At the Pluggstugan (rough translation: ‘study hut’) in Alnarp, students at bachelor level courses and programmes have the opportunity to get study tips from more experienced students through peer-to-peer tutoring. Pluggstugan is open during term time.
Pluggstugan complements teacher-led sessions and offers study techniques, tools and methods to simplify your learning process.
How Pluggstugan can help you
Examples of questions and issues that student mentors can help with:
- How can I learn all those Latin plant names?
- How can I structure my work to advance in my studies and finish on time?
- I have difficulties in setting boundaries for my studies. How can I re-think what I do to succeed?
- Too many articles and books to read! Where do I even begin?
- I need a smart strategy to prep for a test. What do I do?
- I didn’t pass my examination. What should I keep in mind for the retake?
Mentors do not answer questions on specific subjects or course tasks, but they can help you envision how to approach them and structure your work accordingly. Pluggstugan is also a perfect opportunity to chat with someone who’s come further in their studies and has tackled different obstacles along the way!
